Presentations can be uploaded to the Speaker Ready Room starting TBD. The Online Speaker Ready Room will close September 3, 2020 at 5:00 PM EDT (US).  

Those who uploaded presentations to IMAST or last year's Annual Meeting Speaker Ready Room may use the same email account and password. If you have forgotten your password, simply click the 'Forgot Password' button and it will be sent to the email account you used. Presenters who did NOT upload in 2018, 2019 or 2020 should create a new account the first time logging into the site. The SRS members-only site password, abstract submission site password, and M&M site password will NOT work. If you need further technical assistance, please click the "SUPPORT" button at the top right of the Speaker Ready Room homepage.

Download the Audio/Visual Guidelines

Presentations should be in 16:9 format (widescreen) Click here for instructions on converting from 4:3 to 16:9.

CME Accreditation Policies

Abstract presentations will be CME accredited, and it is therefore essential that they be free from commercial influence. References to particular commercial products must use their generic name or be balanced by referring to other similar products.

Disclosures

Please note that all presentations must include a slide listing all of the author(s)' financial disclosures.

Product Name Use Policy

SRS strongly prefers that pharmaceuticals and proprietary software/databases as well as surgical approaches or specific instrumentation such as “Surgimap, MIMICS, EOS Imaging, ROTEM, Isola, TSRH, CD, XLIF, DLIF, AxiaLIF, Solera, Vertex, Expedium, Mountaineer, Shilla, VEPTR etc.,” are not used in presentations. These terms should be replaced by a generic term or description of the drug, software/database and/or instrumentation or technique unless the use of the term directly impacts learners’ understanding of the presentation or data. Instrumentation may also be referred to when the device name is a landmark system that is no longer sold (i.e. Harrington, Cotrel-Dubousset, Luque).

Company names and logos may not be used in any presentation (including in images) at the Annual Meeting.

It is recognized that studies evaluating a device or devices or comparing different devices or techniques may require the use of product or technique names. If a device trade name or industry developed technique using a trademarked name are used in an abstract or presentation, it will be specifically reviewed by the CME Committee for evaluation of any potential conflict of interest. When there is a known potential conflict of interest, an expanded verbal disclosure will be necessary at the time of presentation. Furthermore, if a product name is mentioned, the audience should be informed of why it is necessary to give the name.

Please notify us at cme@srs.org if you plan to use a product name in your presentation.

Non-Exclusive License and Attestation

Both a Non-Exclusive License Form and Attestation Form must be completed in the Speaker Management System.  Faculty will be prompted to complete these forms upon logging in to accept their presentation(s). 

For assistance with username and passwords please email meetings@srs.org.
